This is a game I'll be tempted to pre-order.

Looks like its gonna be similar to AVP2010. Which i am fine with, i just hope they add more variety than AVP2010's marine campaign.

Same here. I liked 2010's SP marine campaign, it had some great moments, just too short and I thought the final battle lacked imagination.

This though, with co-op...I hope it rocks. Very tempted to pre-order.

I wasn't too impressed with the story for the Marine portion in AVP2010, as it had a very weak structure, and no real point to it, other than to just shoot things randomly. This game at least already starts on better ground due to being based after the Aliens film, so there is more of a purpose to being there, and anyone who's watched the film will have that extra knowledge of what went on before the game starts anyway.

There is nothing in this teaser. Still, I would love to see something better than the last AVP (which wasn't bad).

I can't wait for this game. One of my favorite movies as a kid was Aliens.

I played every Alien game I could get my hands on while growing up. I even finished the bland single player in the last AvP game.

The Aliens arcade game with the gun peripheral was awesome back in the day!

Alien 3 on the Genesis was a great game for it's time.

Alien Trilogy... It was like the Doom of the Alien universe. Great game.

The original Aliens vs. Predator is a timeless classic.

AvP 2 was also great. The modified power lifter with the flamethrower, rockets, and minigun was awesome!

The last Alien vs. Predator game wasn't as good as I hoped, especially since Rebellion made it. It was definitely worth playing though, and the multiplayer is pretty entertaining.

also how are they going to explain how there is still a colony, and aliens, on LV-426. It was nuked - the queen was gone and there were no other humans down there. Maybe best not to think about it lol.

I like how they have the classic assault rifle sound from Aliens.
